George Bernard Shaw said, in his play Misalliance,
“They talk of the wickedness and vanity of women painting their faces and wearing auburn
wigs at fifty. But why shouldn’t they? Why should a woman allow Nature to put a false
mask of age on her when she knows that she’s as young as ever? Why should she look in the
glass and see a wrinkled lie when a touch of fine art will shew her a glorious truth?
The wrinkles are a dodge to repel young men. Suppose she doesn’t want to repel young men!
Suppose she likes them!”
